T-Mobile USA (NYSE: TMUS ) had a successful debut on the New York Stock Exchange on Wednesday.
Investors bought into the company that consists of the merged T-Mobile and smaller MetroPCS. Deutsche Telekom (NASDAQOTH: DTEGY ) will retain a 74% stake in the combined company.
T-Mobile USA is losing contract subscribers, and its 43 million combined subscribers is less than Sprint's 55 million. It's also naturally a lot smaller than market leaders AT&T and Verizon Wireless. However, having a company check in every three months is important, even if T-Mobile's financials will be as unimpressive as Sprint's reports have been lately.
In this video, longtime Fool contributor Rick Munarriz explains why it's important to have a third publicly traded wireless carrier for investors to dissect.
